Beautiful red and white color variant of the Bee shrimp ...

The red color morph of the Bee shrimp from South China can grow to a maximal body length of 3 cm and reach an age of around 2 years. The males stay slightly smaller than the females and do not get as plump.

The body color of the Red Bee shrimp is red, interrupted by white horizontal bands. Shrimp of this class are also called 3-banded or 4-banded, depending on the number of bands, of course. The tail fan is usually red with white dots or all white.

The Crystal Red / Red Bee, like most freshwater shrimp, is an omnivore and will eat just about any food. The species is very peaceful, other aquarium inhabitants have nothing to fear from them. You can easily keep them together with fish that do not predate on shrimp.

Red Bee shrimp do not have any special requirements regarding the aquarium decoration ... here you can use your imagination freely. The shrimp are happy with a little moss and driftwood ... and if there are some hiding-places like tubes or brown autumn leaves (oak or beech) in the tank, your Crystal Red shrimp will have everything they need.

When Red Bee shrimp have adapted to their environment and when they are happy, the females will relase up to 30 fully developed shrimplets every 5 to 6 weeks. They have the red and white pattern from the first few days on. In well-planted tanks with lots of places to hide, some of the young shrimp will even grow up in the presence of fish.
Our practical experience is that this number of surviving shrimp offspring is only realistic under the most optimal conditions. Usually, the shrimp will get berried every two to three months or so, and not all offspring will reach adulthood. Overpopulated Bee shrimp tanks are thus not really a problem.

Our tip for keeping Red Bees!
Red Bee shrimp feel the happiest when the pH is between 6 and 7, a total hardness of 5 - 6° dGH (German hardness) and a carbonate hardness of 0 - 1° dKH (German hardness). The temperature should be between 20 and 23° C ... varied food (predominantly of vegetable origin, and frozen food fed sparingly) contributes to heathly, vital, happy shrimp.

Die Tiere kamen gut verpackt an. Bei Ankunft hatten sie zwar keine Farbe, was sich aber nach der Eingewöhnung im Becken sehr schnell erledigt hat. Es sind sehr schöne Tiere und alle machen einen munteren Eindruck.
So macht das Ganze richtig Spaß. Danke dafür.

Sehr sehr hübsche und sehr aktive Tiere. Nach der Eingewöhnung flitzen sie durchs ganze Becken und sind gleich am Futtern gewesen.

Diese Kleinen konnte ich im Sonderangebot ergattern... Wahnsinns Schnäppchen! Alle gesund und munter eingetroffen.
Bei der Ankunft und während der Eingewöhnungszeit im Eimer glaubt man kaum, dass es sich um Red Bees handelt - grau und durchsichtig waren sie.
Erst im Becken haben sie ganz wunderschöne Farbpigmente offengelegt. Tolle Tiere!
